Default Rolls Royce and Bentley Brochures, Advertisements,Memorabilia and the like

These could have gone under some of the many threads but I decided No! The KING (Rolls Royce) is very different and needs an exclusive thread. Bentleys too are exclusive cars and since the manufacturer was the same for a long time, this marque is also featured here.
This one is a Rolls Royce and Bentley publicity brochure (uploaded page by page) published sometime in 1982, with a history of the company and a chronological essay about the cars it made.

Among the greatest looking Rolls Royces are the Silver Cloud and the Corniche according to me.The Silver Cloud in Silver colour comes alive in the James Bond film "A View to a Kill" starring Roger Moore.The Rolls gets sunk in a lake at last.
Maybe fellow members have other opinions about the best looking Rolls Royces.

The ultimate Automobile of the world.
Can't wait for the next episode of your thread.
Don't forget to add the 'Maharaja' connection of the Rolls.
BTW,sme of the scans you took seem to be incomplete,with many words missing.

Thanks Dicky for liking the contents.Yes the scanner played truant and so the tilts/bends. However I have added a footnote that I will rescan these images soon and would request Mods to please replace the nicer ones with the tilted ones. After all, the KING cannot tilt or bend!

A company letterhead as it was in 1985! The company logo shines in silver, but the shine is diminished in the scanned copy

You wrote a letter to Rolls Royce in 1985 and they replied???
Cool, so it explains how you got the brochures.

I have tons of Prewar RR print ads back home in Bombay. from around 1905 to the 60s-70s. Most of them are adverts from The Autocar.
